The National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) has announced a significant change in response to the wave of gunman attacks in the Mangu Local Government Area of Plateau State that tragically resulted in the deaths of several people.
The location of the state’s Batch “B” Stream One Orientation Camp in 2023 will change.
In order to inform the public, especially potential corps members, about the new location, the NYSC released a statement on Monday through its Director of Press and Public Relations, Eddy Megwa.
As stated in the statement, the prospective corps members’ orientation course will no longer be held at the Mangu permanent orientation camp for the time being.
The camping exercise, however, will momentarily take place at the Waye Foundation.
This venue is located by Buken Academy Doi-Du, in Jos South Local Government Area of Plateau State, and has been designated as the interim NYSC orientation camp.
Eddy Megwa emphasised that “All prospective corps members are, by this information, expected to report at the new orientation camp (Waye Foundation by Buken Academy) on the dates specified in their call-up letters.
“The decision to change the venue of the orientation camp effectively demonstrates the authorities’ commitment to the safety and well-being of corps members.
” By relocating to a more secure area, the NYSC aims to lessen potential risks and establish a conducive environment for the corps members to undergo their orientation training.
“The NYSC remains unwavering in its dedication to the safety and well-being of corps members.”
